Duh.  That certainly looks like it would be the problem.  It had to be something pretty
gross and stupid.  That will lead me to a better place on deployment.  I'll deploy a derby
.jar alongside mine and reference it there instead of being dependent on some separate installation.

Thank you all for your patience and kind attention.  Sorry to have bothered you.

That agrees with the description of "java -jar" here: 

The jar file manifest needs to have a Class-Path attribute which lists 
the whole classpath for the application. See 

Hope this helps,
